Already forced to postpone the launch of the Turismo version of its sports car, Porsche has mobilized several hundred Audi technicians to help it meet the production targets of its Taycan.
A total of 400 Audi employees are said to have moved from Neckarsulm to reinforce the production site in Zuffenhausen, where the Taycan is assembled. According to the German publication Automobilwoche, the first transfers took place in June and are expected to continue in the coming months.
Revealed in its final version just a year ago, the Porsche Taycan had already had to increase its production capacity to cope with the influx of orders. " We are currently producing over 150 Taycan per day. We are still in the ramp-up phase Said a spokesperson for the brand.
For Audi, this sharing of resources is not without interest. On their return, the 400 employees made available by the brand will be able to share their expertise in electricity, the Neckarsulm site having been designated to ensure the production of the future Audi e-tron GT. Electric sedan similar to the Taycan, this one will arrive at the end of 2021.
